This post is going to be super short, because I only got one submission this week for Motivational Monday. I almost decided to save it for next week, but it's super inspiring, so I figured one story is better than none. I'm sure you will find it as inspiring as I did! Enjoy :)
This is an email from Jennifer:
"In August 2014, my doctor informed me that I was on the verge of being diagnosed with onset diabetes. I weighed 288 lbs, I was barely fitting into size 24 clothing, I had developed severe sleep apnea, and could barely walk around the block without terrible pain in my legs and back. I decided it was time to take my life back and dedicated the next year to improving my health and doing something I have always wanted to learn to do…RUN!!!
With support and encouragement from my husband, daughter, family, and friends, I joined the Running Room in Ottawa. In September 2015, I ran my first 5K in the Army Run; and one month later, reached my goal of losing 100 lbs, fitting into a size 14! In 2016, I hope to run a 10K and reach my final target weight of 150 lbs!"
Congratulations on your weight loss and your running accomplishments, Jennifer! You look amazing. Make sure you update us when you run your 10K and reach your goal weight :)
